Coalition for Suicide Prevention

Coalition for Suicide Prevention in Clackamas County

Help Us Identify Gaps and Strengths
We need your help identifying the gaps and strengths in the system of care and supports for suicide prevention in Clackamas County, with the goal to make them more equitable and responsive to people at risk across the county and across the lifespan. Here’s how you can help:

  1. Fill out the online survey by May 2, 2019 (or sooner!)
  2. Share this survey with organizations and individuals that are engaged in suicide prevention – either directly or indirectly and ask them to fill out the survey by May 2, 2019

The community-led coalition will work collaboratively to prevent suicide and support people who have experienced suicide loss. Those participating will decide the priorities for action. Examples of priorities from other suicide prevention coalitions include:

  • building awareness
  • identifying strengths and gaps in services and supports
  • better understanding what puts people at risk
  • creating supports for families and communities who experience loss
  • educating policy makers and advocating for changes
  • leveraging resources by working together to combine efforts
  • empowering the community to be ambassadors for suicide prevention

All are welcome. Every community, culture, race, or organization in our county has been affected by suicide, no one is immune from it. We invite participation from anyone who is concerned and wants to work collaboratively.
